Studio Mend

What: A service for mending signs of wear and tear in clothing with appealing embellishments designed to add to the look rather than blend in.

Why: Before our current throwaway culture, it was normal to repair clothing. It was simply too valuable to just get rid of. By making repairs visible, Studio Mend allows them to be a source of pride rather than something to hide. This encourages others to follow suit and invest in clothing that can be worn for longer, increasing the lifespan of our wardrobe favourites.

How: Choose from four techniques and colour combinations that heighten the quality and unique character of every garment.

“A statement about the emotional and material value of what we wear”
